Abstract

State customer activities inevitably imply signing governmental contracts with companies of various types. Government contract making may result in certain risks and economic security threats for the state customer and it is of primary importance because its successful execution influences the budget savings and the application of funds. Professional literature shows little information on contractor assessment for the making of government contracts, and there are no developed procedures for the interaction audit of the contractors in the Ministry of Agriculture. We analyzed and suggested procedures for the assessment of contractors in the Ministry of Agriculture of the Astrakhan region. The operations of the ministry and its subordinate entities cannot be isolated at the moment because they enter into dozens of government contracts every year. One of the threats influencing the execution of the contract is the vendor’s inability to perform their obligations due to the incorrect calculation of the maximum face price of the contract. The author claims that the inability to properly assess the diligence of a potential contractor is due to the very requirements for procurement participants and the non-compulsory character of government customer audits of the procurement participant’s compliance with those. Therefore, the government customer shall be legally obliged to audit the contractor at the selection stage, not during the fulfillment of contractual obligations, which is often done indirectly by auditing the government customer themselves.
